Amanda Bynes

Charged with DUI

6/5/2012 3:35 PM PDT UPDATED: 6/5/2012 4:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-amanda-bynes
Amanda Bynes has officially been charged with DUI after her arrest back in April -- when she sideswiped a cop car and allegedly attempted to flee the scene.

Bynes has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI -- and the D.A. has sought a sentencing enhancement because the actress refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.

Bynes has not been charged with hit-and-run.

If convicted -- with the sentencing enhancement -- we're told Bynes faces a minimum of 48 hours in jail ... and a maximum of 6 months.

But because of jail overcrowding, it's unlikely Bynes will ever serve longer than a few hours.

4:35 PM PT -- And now this ... Amanda just tweeted, "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."

Yup - because that's exactly what Barack does, he bails drunk little chubby white girls out of jail after their night of clubbing.
Not to be like the hundreds of peeps who jump on here sarcastically like "Who? / Never heard of her, etc"...but, for real, who is this chick? I'm asumming maybe Mickey Mouse Club..some Nick Kids' girl...I'm stumped, and it's not important enough to google - she doesn't look like she'll be famous for a lifetime.

I always wondered why Seth MacFarlane broke up with her. Now it makes sense. That Tweet is the icing on the cake. She is officially the new Lindsay Lohan!

This mug shot needs to be done over.


Does not do Amanda justice ...


Suggestion:


Hollywood stars get 12-15 takes ...


A lighting and make-up person -


A director with credits - an A-list photog.


Amanda's people?


Signing-off on anything released to the media.

Doesn't drink? BS, I've seen multiple photos of her with drinks in her hand. What were they props? Don't attack the officer for doing his job. You should thank him for saving you from a vehicular manslaughter charge. AIRHEAD. Used to like her, I won't support anymore of her projects. Hope you lose all Amanda.

Well, at least you can expect her to actually serve her full time without getting out 12 times for no ****ing reason
